Geocache Description:

In this geocache you get to visit 9 of the popular tourist locations in inner Canberra. You’ll need to find the first 8 locations, to gather the clues for the final location. At each location there is a sign or a plaque, use this to calculate the value of the letter, each letter being a single digit number. These are also substituted into coordinates as you go. The locations are all within 6km of each other, however I wouldn’t recommend walking – in fact I’d say a car would be the way to go. All locations can be found at any time, and no entrance fees are required (unless you choose to enter the attraction, in which case some have opening hours / entrance fees). Of course, a short walking is needed at each location, but never more than 200 meters or so from the car park. (In some cases less than 10m if you get the right car park).
